Attractions include vintage and war time vehicles, displays and stalls.

There will be people dressed in period costume, with a singer giving you the feel of the time performing songs like 'The White Cliffs of Dover'. A truly lovely experience taking you back to a Great British era.

Enjoy riding our glorious steam train, visit our Engine Shed and Workshop, look around our shop and have something to eat in the Whistlestop Café.

We are always looking for new exhibitors. If you would like to take part in this weekend please contact the ESR Office for an application form Email us
